Why aren’t field goals in Fantasy Football decimal scoring?

Rob said this the other week and it blew my mind.

“Heh, that’s actually a pretty good idea…”

Fantasy football is stuck in the stone-age with 30-39 yards = 3 points, 40 – 49 = 4 points, etc. Every league at this point is decimal scoring, why wouldn’t a 35 yard field goal be 3.5 points?

How many games have been LOST by .1 because a field goal was 39 or 49 yards instead of 40 or 50?

It makes no sense to have a 39 yarder be the same amount as a 30 yarder, but a full point less than a 40 yarder.

    Agreed. The only counter comment I would even consider is the kicker spot should be removed. Never understood this but I sort of, like really loosely, get it. Decimals to fgs and bidding waivers should be mandatory.
